Is when I will move again.  NEVER NEVER NEVER will I put myself through a move EVER again.  My middle toe is numb and I can barely walk.   I will die in this house before I move out of it.

We still have a mile long list of  things TO DO, but since I have internet and a few spare minutes I wanted to show you the before and after's SO FAR. Keep in mind there is a lot more to go and a LOT to tell you about. 

For only 1 week we've come pretty far:






AFTER -  and yes, that is a bottle of Windex of course!










 AFTER -but it has changed even more in the last few hours, because I had to throw together a Birthday Party for my 9 year old at the last minute.

Isn't this the cutest?

This room was solid Pink with Turquoise carpeting!

Our Hoosier Cabinet

Make-shift Pantry off the Kitchen

Bath off the Pantry

Off to work on that TO DO list........
See you soon!

Wow, you've done so much! So jealous. Can't wait to go house shopping if we ever sell our house.

Kate said...

Your house is adorable. Love all of the details. Moving is incredibly daunting. I don't blame you for never wanting to do it again. I've said the same thing to Jeff. And, I mean it. Even if we win the lottery and we have the ability to buy our "dream home", I will never move again. This home will have to do forever.

Oh moving sucks, but it looks wonderful. Love the pics!

I said the same thing the last time we moved. I will gut this house room by room if I have to. LOL

That looks great! Seriously, who would have a pink room with turquoise carpeting??

Fantastic! You certainly have an eye for this sort of thing. Okay--our stuff is due to arrive in Kuwait in a few weeks time. Wanna come over and help unpack and remodel our new apartment?
